SCPS Professional Learning
The Spotsylvania County Public School professional learning system is aligned with Learning Forward's Standards for Professional Learning that emphasize embedded, teacher-centered, data-driven professional learning experiences in support of improved student learning and outcomes.
The SCPS system incorporates various models and delivery options for teachers and staff such as traditional workshops, blended learning, and online professional learning opportunities. In support of our Strategic Plan, SCPS licensed staff participate in professional learning that aligns with personal, school, and division goals.
The Office of Professional Learning and Instructional Programs guides and coordinates the SCPS professional learning system along with school leaders who are responsible for the implementation and success of professional learning and PLC work in their schools. Delivering professional learning is every professional’s responsibility and opportunities can be found on the Performance Matters website.
